It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. A “Blue Christmas” at least.Blue Christmas is a project of the Irving Fire Department and the Irving Police Department. The Irving Quilt Guild will be collecting gifts for Irving children at the meeting on Thursday, November 15h. NEW unwrapped gifts, canned food or cash are needed. We will have representatives from the Irving Fire Department’s Station 2 attending our meeting
The following list includes the most needed items.
*ANYTHING for a teenage girl
*Books for teens, both boys and girls
*Bicycle helmets for children 12 and under.
*Art supplies for all ages, but especially for older children and teens.
*Games and puzzles for older children and teens.
*Cash, or checks made out to Blue Christmas, will help to buy the food given to the families. Gift cards are not accepted.
*Canned food, especially protein like tuna, spam, chili, and other non-perishable food items. These are given to families along with a turkey and other food items.
Stuffed animals or other plush toys are not needed at this time. There is already an over-abundance of these.
A NEW gift for any age child will be appreciated, but the items for older children and teens are the most needed.
